OK, it's midnight, so I can be forgiven for being longwinded. So here goes...

Put a real router in front of the WRTP54G. Stop wasting your time. You have better things to do. If you can find them, I have threads with tales of major angst trying to get the WRTP54G QoS running, and that was the very beginning of my tales of woe with this router. It dies daily under the strain of heavy-connection loads like BitTorrent, it's QOS Does. Not. Work. Period.

I had trouble with intermittent call quality (to put it nicely). I had trouble keeping my network stable. I had DNS problems, requiring workarounds. You name it, other than actual dropped calls, I had it.

Finally, I had it. Resisting the urge to reshape the WRTP54G into a flatish pile of silverish shards using a large lump of metal attached to a wooden stick (aka "Hammer Time!"), I resolved to fix my network first, then deal with my Vonage issues later.

I went out and bought a WRT54G V4, now known as the WRT54GL, loaded aftermarket firmware (HyperWRT Tofu), put the WRTP54G behind it, and turned off everything I could find (wireless, firewall, etc) on the WRTP54G, and... wow. I mean, really. wow. BEST $50 I have spent in years. Hands down. The WRT54GL is about $75 now, and I'd do it again in a second. It cost me about a month or so of my Vonage savings over landline cost, and it was worth every last penny.

My calls are crisper and clearer on Vonage than they have ever been. Seriously, even with my network idle, my WRTP54G voice quality was "good". With the WRTP54G doing ONLY Vonage work, and my network going like a bat outta hell with other stuff, but the WRT54G managing things, the voice quality is land-line good. Better than cell. Far better.

With QoS, I no longer have to cringe when the phone rings downstairs and my desktop upstairs is running full-bore BitTorrent, because the WRT54G clamps down on BitTorrent and feeds the Vonage WRTP54G everything it asks for.

And I can still surf the web and use my multiple VPN connections and 9 simultaneous IM connections, with BitTorrent going gangbusters the whole time and an active Vonage call at 90k running from time to time, with nary a failure for **21 consecutive days**. My network just - works. Like it should. "Oh, sweet mystery of life, at last I've found yooooouuuuuu...." (extra points for anyone who gets the reference).

Now, don't get me wrong. This was a learning curve. I had to learn a lot about QoS, how the Linksys routers worked, etc etc. But, much to my infinite delight, I learned that the WRTP54G is a most excellent Vonage device.

As long as you don't ask it to do any actual routing, or wireless, or anything else that overworks the poor little dear.

Should you decide to go this route, please do feel free to ask for help. Loading the router with HyperWRT Tofu is easy. Tuning QoS took a lot of research, but I can shortcut you through a lot of that. However, detailed discussion of this is probably outside the scope of these forums. and are great resources.

PS: DO NOT load the code from the main page. It's old. Look for "Tofu" if you are running a WRT54GL, and "Thibor" if you choose a WRT54GL. And avoid the WRT54G itself, unless you can find an older model.
